The fine line between poetry and rap to me has always been blurry. While literary purist will object to the vast similarities between the two art form, I dare say it’s all about perspective. I’m not a poet or super deep into it but I do recognize similarities when it comes to rap. The extensive use of a distinct style, rhythm which ultimately births an emotion that the listener can tap into. Once the message is passed and the listener can connect-say no more- congratulations, work well done.

MA bsed poet/emcee Jazzmyn RED brings an interesting vibe (no pun intended) on her new single “Positive Vibes Only”, which is a feel good jazz influenced gem (courtesy of The Arcitype). Jazzmyn RED taps into her positive chakra and laced the backdrop with inspirational quotes with a veteran like confidence.

“…Depression is a muthaf**ka, Pains get real/ But a change of mind can make the wounds all heal…

….Free from negativity, positive vibes only, I know you feel alone but know you’re never lonely…”

Over the length of 3 verses, Jazzmyn RED touches on different situations and like the title of the song says, only the positive elements get the forefront. She may not tag herself a role model but she has definitely proven to be an inspirational being with this uplifting gem.

“…Look in the mirror, babygirl you’re a blessing/ Dark skin, light skin, it don’t matter your complexion

Cos we all queens, power perfected and attention ain’t s**t if you ain’t being respected…”

Check it out right away. “Positive Vibes Only “ is off Jazzmyn RED’s forthcoming LP Writing HERstory.

“Positive Vibes Only” is now available for stream. Stay tuned for more info. and music from Jazzmyn’s sophomore project, Writing HERstory, which is set to drop Jan. 16th, 2017 (Martin Luther King Day).
